I have this code in my HTML:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/firstbigletter.css" />
With this CSS, I correctly get the first font (TypoUpright BT) to be displayed as the first letter in this paragraph on this page:
font-family:"TypoUpright BT", "Times New Roman", serif;
However, when trying other fonts, using this modified CSS code, I do not get the first font-family. I don't even get the TypoUprightBT anymore. It just defaults to something plain:
font-family: "Palace Script MT", "TypoUpright BT", Gigi, Harrington;
I have tried other variations - e.g.
font-family: Mistral, "TypoUpright BT", Gigi, Harrington;
font-family: Gigi, "TypoUpright BT", Harrington;
all of which also fail to select any of the fonts, just defaulting to something plain.
I would appreciate if someone would tell me what I am doing wrong in the latter examples and that only the very first code works.
I am trying this on my own machine using CSS to see the results. I am not trying to get these fonts to be loaded/displayed on a user's (reader's) machine with CSS3 (they would likely be blocked by users anyway).
Control Program shows all of these fonts are installed on my machine (W7).
